This exciting and engaging workshop will be co-led by William Kerley and Jessie Maryon Davies.  During the three-hour workshop, we will be exploring the art and creativity of singing in an opera chorus. Will and Jessie will guide you through key performative elements such as character, physicality, motivation and movement. Participants will also devise text and music to create their own mini operas together. We welcome all voices, and all levels of singing experience from newcomer to professional, from choral, non-traditional and operatic backgrounds.
